My Moment by Jordan Larson

Comforts of Home & Back to Training by Alisha Glass

by Brynn Murphy on June 6, 2012

Hello Mizuno People,It has been a crazy couple of months.  Coming back from Poland and starting training with the National team has been quite the whirlwind.  I got to go home, and if you’ve read my previous blogs, I got to have my favorite sandwich from Sisson’s Main Street Specialties.  I’ve tried to explain how wonderful it is, but maybe this will help.  While I was in Poland, I experimented with being a vegetarian, or more specifically a Pescatarian.  My reasons for the change weren’t typical.  I used to be a very picky eater ...
